    Q1: is it worth purchasing 20 or 25% nitro in Europe when u need a license for it?

Q4: I'm into buying...

    DIY ram air/ forced induction

    would it be possible to create an air filter for gas/nitro engines with a small 1/10th fan on the top, forcing air through the intake? So even at low speed/ stopped there is more airflow going through the filter? I'm not sure if this would actually do anything but it seems simple, just CA glue a...

    Kyosho FW06 Audi R8 2019

    Just bought this car. Still breaking it in and tuning it. I still want to tune it a bit more before I take it out onto a tar track. I replaced the rubber tires and went with slicks and it handles very well on the street. It does lower it more than stock tires by about a 1mm. It sits 5mm stock...
